"LEA!" My sister yelled from the other side of the house .
"I'm coming ! Jeez." I replied.
"Come on the king is coming to town today ! Hurry up".
My name is Lea Carter . I live with my parents and my sister Elli . She's younger than me . I'm 18 years old . We live in a large kingdom, 'Emerland' . Our king is ruthless . But he's on verge of dying . They say his son will be the next king and he's more ruthless and a cold hearted man . He does not know love . No one knows his name . Even the closest ones to the royal family . Every body call him monster or beast . He's known to kill every traitor or enemy in a way that nobody can imagine .
As you see our king is coming before his death to make sure that his kingdom, especially 'Potens Town', the capital of Emerland and where the royal palace is located, is good. The name of our town means 'powerful' in latin because we were the most powerful town in the whole kingdom.
"Earth to Lea !" Elli was waving her hand in my face .
"What ? Oh sorry I was lost in my mind ."
"Come hurry the prince must be with the king !" She said dramatically.
I rolled my eyes at her exitment. Thought the prince was never seen with a woman before . They say he's waiting for the perfect one . I doubt that a woman would love such beast.
Once we were in the village a large crowd was forming near the shops and we could see the carriage coming towards us .
All the girls started checking their selfs up including my sister . Ohh ! She's such a child . It was as if the prince would care for any of them .
We walked through town looking at the people I have known since I was in diapers. They waved at us. Some know us others were only being polite.
"Good morning girls." Mr Brent yelled from his shop.
"Good morning Mr Brent." We yelled simultaneously.
"Come on Lea let's go see the prince!" She said excitedly.
"Wait Elli. We should see Mr Milton too. I promised him I would return the book today. I can't forget." She rolled her eyes.
"Fine I'll go. When you're done come to me." She said and left when she spotted her group of friends.
I entered the old library. Few people were present since not many know how to read. 10 percent of the town knows how to write and read. My dad taught me and my sister how to do it. He told us that a friend of his taught him and he was more than happy to see us being able to read.
"Good morning Mr Milton!" I yelled to grab his attention.
"God Lea you will give me a heart attack some day." He said dramatically.
"I'm sorry Mr Milton." I smiled at him apologetically.
"Did you finish the book?" He asked enthusiastically.
"Yeah! Greek gods are my favorite books. I'm so happy I found one here. The other day I had to go to the town next to us to find a good book." I rambled happily.
"Hopefully you will find what you want today. Where's Elli?" He raised an eyebrow.
"I think she's old enough to wander alone around town." I shrugged and he laughed.
I was a bit overprotective of Elli and everyone knew it. But it was time she take care if herself.
After I searched the whole library I finally found a good book to read.
"Did you find what you want?" Mr Milton asked.
"Yes I did. I can't wait to read it!" I gave him my biggest smile.
"Dracula? Really?" He smiled teasingly. Despite Mr Milton being an old man he was more fun to be around than most of the teenagers nowadays.
"Don't judge. It's an amazing book."
"You read it 7 times already." He laughed.
"I can read it 100 times and still fall in love with it every time."
"Make sure to bring it back on time." He yelled as I exited his library.
"I will." I yelled and walked freely around town.
"Lea!" I turned around to see my best friend since diapers. Nolan.
"Nolan!" I screamed and hugged him. He caught me and twirled me around. People thought we were a couple. But I couldn't have feelings for Nolan. I see him more like the brother I never had.
"I've read it 7 times and I'll read it again." I rolled my eyes at him.
"You're unbelievable." He teased me and we walked together.
"Oh god! Princeton stop running!" A 7 years old boy almost bumped into us. Mrs Garfield was running behind her grandson.
"Mrs Garfield." Nolan greeted the old lady politely. He smiled sweetly at her. And let me tell you. He have a charm that could pull you.
"Oh Nolan dear that child will hive me a heart attack." She said trying to take a deep breath.
"Hello Mrs Garfield." I said.
"Oh Lea I didn't notice you. How are you darling?" She smiled at me.
"I'm fine Mrs Garfield. Princeton is giving you a hard time isn't he?" I laughed.
"Yes dear he is. I tell you if I die it would be because of him- PRINCETON DON'T THROW THE MILK." She screamed. Nolan and I winced at her screaming.
"I'll se you around children I have to catch the kid before someone dies."
"Bye Mrs Garfield." We both said and she left running.
"For an old lady she is capable of running more than you." He smirked and I hit his hand.
"That's abuse young lady." He said. I rolled my eyes.
"You're so dramatic." I said and resumed walking.
"Come on Lea there's a show down the road let's go." He took my hand and we ran down the bridge laughing.
"Slow down Nolan I'm going to fall." I tried to catch my breath but failed miserably.
People were standing around musicians. They were playing a traditional song and people started dancing around them.
"Let's dance!" I grabbed Nolan's hand and we started jumping and turning around laughing hysterically.
"I'm having so much fun!" I yelled.
"Come on the prince is here let's go see him." We heard a girl say to her friends and they started running.
"Mr Brent?" I asked surprised.
"Dad?" Yeah Mr Brent was Nolan's father.
"We have to go home your mother is sick again." He sighed.
"I'll see you around Lea." Nolan said and left not before kissing my cheek.
"Bye Nolan." I yelled.
I turned to go see my sister before she does something stupid and smiled at the passing people.
"You fucking bitch." I heard a high pitched scream. I rolled my eyes. Here we go again.
I turned around the corner and saw Elli screaming at a little girl.
"Elli! What are you doing?" Elli tensed.
"She punched me!" Elli said.
"That's a little girl? How was she able to punch a big girl like you?" I rolled my eyes.
"Well she did." She shrugged.
"I did not!" Stefani yelled.
"Shut up you fuc-"
"Elli." I glared at her.
"Come on we have to go." I took her hand.
"I'm watching you witch." Elli screamed and I glared at her.
"You're a fun killer Lea you know that."
"Where is the fun in screaming in a little girl's face."
"She's Princeton's sister! What do you expect?"
"She's a sweet girl unlike her brother." I said.
"No don't let her fool you. She's a witch." Elli said dramatically.
"Ugh I can't believe you Elli." I was still holding her hand and dragging her. Maybe if she saw the royal carriage she'll ditch her bitch attitude.
"Dracula Lea? Are you for real?" She smacked her forehead after she saw the book I was holding.
"The fuck is wrong with you people! I heard this line for the nth time. Just stop it." I rolled my eyes.
"There it is the carriage." She screamed.
"It has been standing there for a while and still no sign of the prince or the king." I shrugged.
"Did you expect that the prince, the almighty prince will leave his precious carriage early." What's with her and her dramatic attitude.
"Shut up and let's go."
A gard stopped in front of us .
" long live the king of Emerland!"
All the crowd cheered for the king . I was too occupied by admiring the carriage to pay attention on the king . All the people bowed including me . The gards shoved a beggar on the ground after he begged the king to help him and all the poor of the kingdom . We weren't poor neither were we rich .
I ran to the beggar to help him . I knew him . Whenever I came to town he always came to me and I always gave him money or food .
He was younger than me I think he was about 16 years old boy . His parents died 2 years ago leaving him on the streets .
I helped him to his feet when I heard a yell from the same gard who was coming near me . All the villagers where separating letting him pass by . I saw his hand up in the air . I closed my eyes waiting for the pain to come but...
